750 students, 11-18 yrs.

Dubai College is a non-profit making school run by a Board of Governors and established by Emiri Decree in 1978. The College provides a British-system education from age 11 to university entrance, for residents of Dubai and the other Northern Emirates. A three-year foundation programme of 13 subjects leads to the two-year GCSE/KS4 programme followed by the two-year GCE 'A' level programme. Examination results are consistently well above the British national average. Dubai College is also a centre for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.

Teaching staff at Dubai College possess British university qualifications, and have an average of 10 years' teaching experience. The pupils come from some 43 different national backgrounds, though more than 70% are British. Following their final year, they go mainly to university-level studies in Britain (including Oxford and Cambridge), and the USA.

The Dubai College year runs from early September to the end of June, with breaks at Christmas and Easter. Saturday to Tuesday are full school days, (07:50 to 15:25), with inter-house sports and other activities in the lunch hour and after school. Wednesday hours are 07:50 to 13:00.

The Dubai College's extensive facilities include a 13-laboratory science facility, a purpose-built drama studio, a music centre, library and Sixth Form Centre, which complement the existing four classroom buildings. There are also art, D & T, and computing areas, as well as a swimming pool, extensive grassed playing-field areas, a multi-purpose hall, canteen and spacious office accommodation.

Demand for places at Dubai College, especially in the three junior years, is heavy. Entry examinations are held in January for September entry for candidates in the lower four years, whilst admission to the sixth form depends on GCSE level results.
